Gulîstan, terre de roses

Women are members of the PKK (Kurdistan Workers’ Party), which is also a guerrilla organisation. As well as defending Kurdish territory in Iraq and Syria, they are fighting Daesh (the armed group known as Islamic State), while embodying a revolutionary ideal centred around women’s emancipation. The film shows us the thoughts and aspirations of these hardened fighters, including Rojen and Sozdar, while inviting us to share in their private lives.
